Cornwall June News

Hi All, glad you didn’t miss me at last months meeting, I heard that you all had a good evening and that it was well attended. We had a great turn out for “Drive it Day” which Mike has kindly wrote,  Drive It Day dawned wet and windy, but 13 cars from all over Cornwall were not deterred and met at Cornwall Services for the drive up.  It was good to see such a good mix of Triumph Clubs.  We quickly decided not to mess around and go straight up the A30 to our destination Dingles Heritage Fairground Museum.  At a steady 50mph we were quite a sight for the other motorists overtaking us, on a busy Sunday.  We arrived without too much of a hitch (I had to stop to sort out my windscreen wiper, but fortunately I was able to use the paper clip that had been annoying me rattling in the ashtray).  All parked up we went to the Museum, or more accurately the café!  Morning coffee was followed by a tour of the museum and we quickly found that since our last visit, nearly 10 years ago, a lot of exhibits had changed.  By now it was nearly lunchtime, so we went back to our cars for lunch.  Suitably refreshed we headed directly for the Fairground, which fortunately is all under cover.  The Carousel (Gallopers) had been moved inside and the Watlzer had gone, The Rocket had also replaced another ride that we couldn’t remember.  Having precured tokens earlier (another change) we headed for the rides.  Straight after lunch this didn’t feel like a good idea, but we all survived.  More tokens, more rides and we finally realised that we were all ‘faired out’.  There were so many highlights that it was difficult to name any one, but I really enjoyed the Ghost Train and all the screaming!  By about 3pm most people were ready for the drive home, which became brighter and drier the closer we got.  It was good to see so many cars from clubs all over Cornwall and Devon, thank you all for making the effort, I hope you all enjoyed yourselves.  All together I counted around 35 Triumphs, not as many as last time, but still a decent number and it was quite a display for the other visitors, as were the Harley Davidson bikes.  Thank you all for coming, I hope you all enjoyed yourself; you seemed too!  Where do you want to go next year? Thanks Mike for organising, a great event which we all enjoyed very much.
Onto another event, I have just returned from a wonderful few days in the Isle of Wight, celebrating 30th years of the areas camping weekend, although most of us including me are in the static caravans these days. Four cars travelled up from Cornwall this year, two TR7s, a GT6 and my 1500 Spitfire to meet with around 65 other Triumphs ! an amazing effort by everyone.  All our cars did not miss a beat and drove around the Island all weekend with top downs in the sunshine.  Once again Tracey and Elaine you did the island and the TSSC proud and all of us enjoyed your well organised event. Here’s to 2020 !
No more news from me, lots of shows coming up now, so please have a look on our Calendar of Events, or do come along to a meeting or give me a call to find out what is happening in our area.
Happy and Safe Motoring
